Wow! Intense chocolatey taste! These are very fudgy delicious brownies. They did take longer to bake than directed. I set the timer for 40 minutes and they were still very liquidy in the center. A baked for 55 minutes total. The center isn't quite set when you pull them out of the oven but they firm up upon cooling. I baked these for freezer tag in the oamc forum. These freeze very well. I allowed to cool and then cut into individual servings. I then place in a rigid freezer container with layers of parchment paper in between. Worked very well. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
I cook these in an 8x8 pan instead and they come out much better I find. They take a bit longer to cook *about an extra 15 min* but well worth it. Then, I actually ice them with milk chocolate icing. I propose a name change from Quadruple Chocolate Brownies to Delicious Diabetes Delights. lol
These are wonderful brownies! A bit more labor intensive than my usual recipe, but worth it, especially for special occasions. I used chocolate chips instead of chopped chocolate: white, milk and Hershey's Special Dark, and it came out heavenly. Thanks for sharing this extra-special recipe! Note: Do try to wait until they cool...they are even better once they set up completely. Also, cook time was right on for me. I used a tester and it came out a bit wet, but I still took them out of the oven and after they set, the center was fine...fudgey and dense.
